Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama admits that he has found it difficult to digest the Champions League defeat.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side lost 2-0 to Liverpool last Saturday evening in Madrid to end their hopes of being crowned as champions of Europe for the first time in their history following a rollercoaster campaign filled with drama.
Wanyama watched on from the sidelines as an unused substitute with his team-mates failing to put in a performance to seriously challenge Liverpool.
Mo Salah’s early penalty put Liverpool in the box seat and Tottenham lacked the creative edge in the final third of the pitch to try and get themselves back into the match at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
The former Southampton player is currently on international duty with Kenya and insists that he has put the disappointment behind him and believes that Spurs have learned a lot from the heartbreak and will look to improve next season.
He told Goal.com: “Yes, sure you learn a lot from the final, you either learn also or correct your mistakes but I believe we have learned a lot from the defeat in the final and it is not easy, because it takes time to digest it,”
“We have to accept and move on, it is part of life and you know, in any final, there always must be a winner and also a loser and it happened that we lost, kudos to Liverpool for winning the title.
“We can only focus now and correct the mistakes that happened in the final and maybe try again, who knows, we can still play in the final again.”
“I don’t want to think about the Champions League final anymore, I am now looking forward to helping Kenya have an incredible journey in the Afcon. That is my focus now and we are determined to make them shine in Egypt,” Wanyama added.
